The Newest (and Horniest) Dinosaur: the Kosmosaurus
Two remarkable new species of horned dinosaurs have been found in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, southern Utah. The giant plant-eaters were inhabitants of the "lost continent" of Laramidia, formed when a shallow sea flooded the central region of North America, isolating the eastern and western portions of the continent for millions of years during the Late Cretaceous Period. The newly discovered dinosaurs, close relatives of the famous Triceratops, were announced today in PLoS ONE, the online open-access journal produced by the Public Library of Science.
According to a new delightful paper published Sept. 22 in the online science journal PloS One, the Kosmoceratops lived indeed, a good 76 million years ago according to the scientists' reckoning
